The Wake County Sheriff’s Office just confiscated a Corvette Z06 from a baddie and turned it into an unmarked police car. This has been confirmed by several in the Raleigh area who have seen the car lit up like a Christmas tree along I40 as well as the guy who installed the light bar.
Posted on horsepowerjunkies.com was this quote supposedly from a Wake County Sheriff’s Deputy:
That SUM BITCH is BADD! It was a drug seizure vehicle, and the county nor the state spent a dime on that car except to put gas in it. All of the lights and equipment in the car is recycled from another cruiser that has been retired. The only way you will get away from this car is if you go through a parking lot with speed bumps, or cross a median.”
According to others that chimed in, the vehicle was donated by a local drug dealer who paid cash for the car. Other than time spent installing the light bar, no other expenses have been incurred in turning this Corvette into a police car.
“No expenses” may be the case, but wait until the Sheriff’s office needs to come up with $2K for a set of new tires!
